Exclusive: LUCID FLY Premiere Lyric Video for "Visions of Grandeur"

Prog Sphere and US progressive dark rock outfit Lucid Fly have teamed up for an exclusive premiere of the band’s new lyric video “Visions of Grandeur,” which is announcing their debut album Building Castles in Air, out on November 11th. Watch the lyric video below.

Breathing fresh air into the world of prog, Lucid Fly are an irresistible mixture of prog rock, alternative and dark rock. As suitable for fans of A Perfect Circle as RiversideTesseracT or Dead Letter Circus, the band’s new album was self-produced and mixed by the legendary Forrester Savell (Dead Letter CircusKarnivoolTwelve Foot Ninja).

Singer Nikki Layne and guitarist, Doug Mecca say, “We wanted the music to tell the story, through more than just the words. Sonically, we experimented a lot with guitar and vocal tones, dynamics, and layers to capture some of the contrasting themes throughout the album – introspection, melancholy, longing, daydreaming, transformation, and a sense of hope and optimism.

Led by frontwoman Nikki Layne’s gorgeous throaty and ethereal vocals, new album Building Castles In Air is an inexorable freefall through their mysterious, anthemic, otherworldly soundscape. An album that ebbs and flows to beautiful effect, propelled by the peak of lead single “Visions of Grandeur” below, or the militaristic bombast of closer “Paperthin.”

Nikki’s vocals are ably supported by Doug Mecca on guitars, whom she first met in Florida 18 years ago. After honing and evolving their sound with the release of three EPs, the band are ready to expand their sound with debut LP Building Castles In Air.

Following a successful crowdfunding campaign (raising $13k to record the LP), Lucid Fly were one of 17 invited by Mike Portnoy to play Progressive Nation at Sea’s 2014 event (New Millennium stage) alongside Periphery, Haken, Riverside and more.
